Did I miss discussion of this? Surely this has CLIFF's attn:

http://www.dead.net/road-trips/road-trips-vol-4-no-1?eml=dn/101810/rttext

Set list/addt'l info for the three disks:

"Our popular Road Trips series begins its fourth big year with just our second release from the 1960s, and Vol. 4, No. 1 is a certifiably great one: Two complete performances from the Big Rock Pow Wow festival on the Seminole Indian reservation in Hollywood, Florida, May 23 and 24, 1969. If you dig ’69 Dead—and let’s face it, who doesn’t?—then these two sets, spread across three discs, will be right in your wheelhouse. Beautifully recorded by the inimitable Owsley Stanley, aka “Bear,” just three months after the amazing Fillmore West shows that gave us Live Dead (and the fantabulous Fillmore West 1969 box and compilation), and a month after the Midwest shows immortalized on Dick’s Picks 26, the Big Rock Pow Wow set gives us the ragin’ beast that was ’69 Dead at its most feral and wild.

On Disc One we have the full Live Dead sequence of “Dark Star” > “Saint Stephen” > “The Eleven” and “Lovelight,” but each component of this quartet of tunes is loaded with unique moments and fiery interplay. “The Eleven” is particularly ferocious, and the half-hour “Lovelight” will definitely get you shakin’ your groove thang as you bop along to the Mighty Pig & Company.

The next day’s set (and Disc Two of RT 4.1) begins with a smokin’ “Lovelight”; same song, totally different feel and vibe, as the band eases into the set and builds to its first few climaxes, with Pig once again in firm control, making damn sure that nobody has their hands in their pockets. Then it’s on to a fine “Doin’ That Rag” (from their soon to-be-released third album, Aoxomoxoa), a truly stirring version of the relatively rare “He Was a Friend of Mine,” which charges into “China Cat,” followed by another scorching “Eleven,” and capped by a dire and emotional “Death Don’t Have No Mercy.”

Disc Three includes a charged “Morning Dew,” “Alligator,” “St. Stephen” exploding out of “drums” (for the only time during its ’68-’71 incarnation) and more. Nothin’ tame about this mind-blowing stuff!

I ordered, and I'm quite happy!

I had been wishing and hoping for another release from 1969 and this one is fine! Complete shows (retracking is easy enough). I have always loved the Pow-Wow performances, particularly the Dark Star suite from the 23rd!

I buy many of those boxsets, DVDs and other big ticket items. A friend of mine gets all of these Road Trips releases from Rhino for free. He plays them on a non-commercial FM radio station. I can borrow any of them from his personal stash and copy them on my high end CD/DVD burner...

I suppose this is being really picky, but only 42 minutes of music on disc 3? They couldn't find anything else from around that time to fill it out a bit?

I haven't listened to 5-29-69 in a while and I don't remember how strong the performance was, but I see there was a The Other One > Good Morning Little Schoolgirl that would have fit neatly on the rest of disc 3.

Oh well, I guess I shouldn't complain about a 1969 release!

EDIT: I see 5-29-69 is probably actually 5-11-69 and is thought to be a radio broadcast, so maybe it's not in the vault. King Bee and Dark Star > Cosmic Charlie from 5-30-69?

Very exciting! (I mean, aside from both shows already circulating in excellent quality....which most of the time, can't be helped.)
Not only is it nice to see more from the early days, it's even better to see a 3-disc release with no stupid limited-time-only bonus disc.

"Lemieux likes to tease us sometimes with random clips from this run..."

I know, that SOB. I wish they wouldn't have wasted a Dick's Pick on that run, which picked the lesser of the material, really. 3/28 bores me, I need to hear that 3/26. Clearly this run is begging for future releases again. Unless somebody circulates more and beats them to it...

What kind of Prime Minster BS is this? I did give you credit for being 58 sec faster than i am.

Fine yours is better (although i did provide links to the two shows so people can give them a listen.

"I did give you credit for being 58 sec faster than i am"

Not sure that's something I'd want to draw attention to.



Sorry, now back to our regular programming.

Outstanding.


Also good to see that we can still derail the most substantive of threads.

But I too will actually shell out some dollars for this one, may even ante up for the new acoustic Garcia releases as well.

NOTE: And doesn't this very thread back up the arguement that even the most "hardened" of Heads is more than will ing to spend some money when outstanding material in pristine quality is offered, even though they may be able to get the same show for free elsewhere? C'mon Bob and Co., let's open up the SBD's around here, you can still make a profit with releases like this one.

You got that right, P; it seems that even with Mr Burnout here, a show that has been well discussed (recall, there have been many CLIFF notes [har] on these PowWow shows over the yrs here, and others too chiming in) actually provides the perfect case in pt: the more PR the better, even if much of that PR is in the form of "sharing of shows" (which in this case have been relatively high quality).

We still find a way, by and large, to plunk down the ~ $25 (and as L noted, this one is a real "value meal" with three disks coming in at ~ $8 per disk).

Ha--I am doing this entirely as result of my reading of PM DLGeorge (WWI hero): in memoirs such as his (all the PMs did--do?--it), you wouldn't believe (well, I guess you would) how much of exactly THIS goes on ("I did it right" & "yes, but I did it faster" & "my contribution was more important", blah, blah, blah).

But, that title is no longer applicable, so I was just having good ol' fashioned fun since Dire's not available much these days.

I did not even see this until S&R pointed it out to me...What a great release...Great to see they are cleaning this one up and releasing both nights...You were right Cliff, I shoulda had both nights for my DDP 9 pick....I think this is the best choice they have made for an official release in quite a while. Will be grabbing this one for sure. Outstanding!
